HISTORICAL DEW, '"MARCH TIME BM.o.s.M>.e*t. 1M RICH MENWASHINGTON: At his press conference one day last week, President Roosevelt told newshawks a tale at unethical practises, of rich men who had avoided taxes by hiring high-priced lawyers to find loop holes in the law. On his desk were numerous case histories provided by the Treasury Department. One man had Incorporated his yacht and transferred to the corporation a block of securities, the income from which escaped being taxed tome 150,000 a year because it went to pay the 'losses" of the corporation from which he "chartered" the yacht at fees which fell far short of paying its $100,000 a year upkeep. Another rich man Incorporated his family in Bermuda, paid high salaries to all Its members including a 12-year-old child. A retired military officer with royalties of S2.000.000 a year from an invention transferred his patent rights to a corporation formed in Bermuda, took out papers for Canadian citizenship, then wired to ask whether he could still collect hli retired pay from the U. S. Point ing out that some of these schemes were legal or techfcally legal, but that all were immoral, Franklin Roosevelt said he would ask a congressional investigation. Unable to say exactly how much ~ lost say that the practice had been growing for aevera years and bad lately become much worse, that about 160 of the very rich were engaged in It, that the names of these tax-dodgers wouU be revealed only in the congressional investigation to come.

When the "Cavalier's" Captain William Neville Gumming, dressed in doggy blue uniform and carrying kid gloves, was asked If he had brought a clean shirt, he replied: "Oh, I say, I'm going back tomorrow."

CHANOE AT NO. 10— LONDON: With the wistful air of a boy in bin final day at school, Britain's Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin ambled into the Houne of Commons one afternoon last week, announced a* his very "last word" before retiring the felicitous news that Parliament Member*' salaries would be ruined from $2,000 to $3,000 • year. Next morning, 11 years after he formed the first of his three governments, 69-year-old Squire Baldwin entered Buckingham Palace to hand over to King George the seals of his office, left IB minutes later with two framed inscribed photographs of Their Majesties under his arm. Pulling blandly at bin cherry- pipe, plain Mr. Baldwin then drove off to give final orders for the removal of his personal belongings from the Prime Minister's official residence at 10 Downing Street before starting a three-weeks holiday in the country. On the Mall bis car passed another going in the opposite direction with tall, hawk- nosed Chancellor of the Exchequer Arthur Neville Chamberlain. With the traditional words "I appoint you Prime Minister and First Lord of the Treasury," King George greeted Mr. Chamberlain a few minutes Uter. Mr. Chamberlain knelt, kissed His Majesty's band, Mceived from him the seals of of- floe and the keys of the Prime Min- Mprti dispatch box. roae to bis feet M Prime Mini*** Neville Chamberlain.

Ricker Bros. Began with $800 and Energy; Today, 240 Acres In 1896, two brothers, Joe and Will Rlcker, with $800 in cash, purchased a farm two miles north of Algona. In 1937, the two brothers are still located on the same place —with the exception that it is, today, clear of debt, 240 acres In size, and contains an assortments of farm buildings modern and sizeable, as well as a brand new stockyards for loading cattle—rarely found on farms. The Rlcker Bros, are bachelors. When we went out to call at their place they were putting new timber on a hay- loader; It already looked practically like new. The Rickcr family came to Kossuth county In 1893, from Illinois, with the two sons just old enough to help with farm work. In 1896, the boys branched out for themselves and rented the farm they now own and live on. At that time it was owned by Dr. Barr, who later sold it to W. K. Ferguson. The Rlckers bought the place from Ferguson. The barn and house on the Ricker Bros, farm are both large and spacious, and disprove the old saying about farm buildings that "good barn, poor house, or good house, poor barn." At present the Rlckers are feding 49 head of whlteface cattle. This Lad Has 3 Jobs At Once Some boy* don't want to work; some can't find lobs who weald work.

School Tells Results Of Vocational Guide Work Laing and McDoirell Devoted Half Hour To Every Senior Efforts to carry out a plan of vocational guidance—as if in response to an editorial in last werk's Upper Des Moines—came to light this week when summarized study of interviews with all graduating seniors were made public by O. B. Laing, superintendent of schools, and John McDowell, principal. The two local school men Interviewed every graduating senior, asked each one what plans, If any had been made for their future after graduation, and offered suggestions as to ways and means of accomplishing the thing desired. The editorial last week, speaking generally of school systems, offered the thought that the school process Is much likei a cement mixing machine, turning out a standard product, headed no place In particular. Boys Like Engineering In the case of the young men graduating, the survey revealed that nine chose engineering either first or second as a life career. The engineering included aviation engineering, mining engineering, electrical engineering, hydraulic engineering and dlescl engineering. The major choices ranged as follows: SAFE AND SANE FOURTH & FIFTH AT FAIRGROUNDS But With All the Fun That Any body Could 3 Divorces Granted In District Court Three divorces were granted by Judge James DeLand, Tuesday. Arnold Hinz was granted a divorce from Harriett Hinz. Lottie Marie Wagner was given a decree from Ernest Carl Wagner.

Tun without fear of accidents, Is the keynote of the. giant celebration to be staged at the Kossuth fair grounds, July 4th and 8th.

And there will be absolutely no element of danger in their display. Expert technicians of a Chicago fireworks concern will handle the enormous display. Final plans were being rounded out this week for the two day celebration. Vaudeville acts will be the finest obtainable, racing programs, baseball games, a carnival company and other concessions, and special added features will be Engineering:—9. Business—8. Aviation—B. Farming—5. Teaching;—3. There were scattered choices of one each for Inw. dentistry, journalism, forestry, beekeeping, conservation, etc. Secretarial for fllrls With an overwhelming; chorus the senior girls turned to hopes of placing In commercial or secretarial lines. The choices of_the girls, either first or second, follows: Commercial—20. Nursing—13. Teaching—9. Social Service—2. There were scattered selections of masseuse, clerking, specialized home econmics, costume design. Interior decorating, journalism, beauty culture, music teaching, and law. One girl wanted to work In a soda grill. Ten of the boys were certain they were going to college, and eight of the girls. Perhaps half of the remainder of the class were not certain, but Indicated they would like to go If they possibly could. Purpose of Surrey Mr. Lalng and Mr. McDowell hoped, by making a beginning this year, to expand the system of vocational guidance, so that In the near future, instead of waiting until the students are seniors, the freshmen and sophomores will be Interviewed. The local men believe that then, If the student indicates a strong nnd reasonable desire to enter certain fields, the school work can be put In tune with the student's desire, so that he or she will be better than average equipped to tackle what they want after graduation. Work now being done, while still In a preliminary stage, should be of great interest to parents with children ia FINAL RESULTS OF STATE TEST ARE ANNOUNCED Graduation Diplomas To Be Mailed Out This Week ready for announcement In full, soon. Outstanding mortorcyole racers from all sections of the Northwest have been booked for the afternoon program on July 5th, Mr. Vincent stated.

Ask Donation Of Unused Athletic Goods For Kids Clean out your old attics, basements and closets, and if you have any old athletic equipment which you can no longer use, but some youngster can, get in touch with any member of the Junior Chamber of Commerce, or Paul Bergcr, who ia in charge of playground work in the city. Berger says that many of his charges have no baseball or kitten- ball bats, balls or gloves, and no money with which to buy them. Therefore, any articles of athletic equipment, or athletic clothing that ;-an be used, will be greatly appreciated.
